A thank-you to Jennifer Hadley and Suzie Taraba at the Special Archive Collection at the university for their generous assistance. Also, thanks to WMArchivist for your continued interest and help as we try and solve as much of this mystery as we can. Finally, a thank-you to LiA for his impetus in this project and his expert handholding. It's been fun!

Remember when you were trashing The Internet Archive, micah, while they were in a funding drive in late 2011? Did you disclose your extreme contempt for The Archive's fundraising to the Wesleyan University librarians when you went over there "for us"?

LiA should carefully reconsider where and how he earns his journalistic reputation around here, and who he thinks he's serving in this instance. LiA's comment is misguided at best: "Fortunately, our local correspondent went to see the [Wesleyan] video, and brought back a surprising report."

Micah, now you're claiming to be a "historian's investigator" for archivists, collectors, and music lovers to take note of? (I'm reaching for my puke bucket.)

William Tell's most insightful comment was posted in his response to your drivel, and I agree with him: "It is in keeping with your view [Micah] that the decline of the Forum is just around the corner" (which you have helped achieve... "it has been fun")

Looking back at some of my posts you bet there are moments where I look bad and do more then play the part of the fool. However, the average person can also see the other side of the balance sheet, that you, grand and courageous poster that you are, choose to be blind to. The only reason that I deign to answer you is to say No Way to the broad brush you attempt to paint with.

Get in the arena a bit more and we shall see how sweetly you smell. After your several posts and the full puke bucket, the baseline is set low to begin with.

Just my opinion, but you and that RBNW guy are the two biggest jerks on this forum...and possibly the ONLY two jerks here. That's just my observation from reading your posts here and RBNW's posts here.

You really shouldn't insult RB like that. ;-)

If I knew thanking those good folks would descend into farce I would have tried to lead off with a joke or two.
